Extremely friendly joint. We weren't sure if the recommended beer was up our alley, so they gave us a little sample. We ended up with 2 half pints of Sweet Baby Jesus Porter beer. My Reuben was a bit different. Served with a half inch thick slice of corned beef rather than deli sliced, it made for neater eating. My... More

The first thing you see when you walk into Molly Malone is the grandiose salon bar. The magnificent replica is stunning and impressive. It gives the feel of a many pub type ambiance with a flaire that speaks Irish pride with American spice. The portions are hearty and taste wonderful. The Pesto Grilled Chicken with the mash potatoes and homemade... More

We enjoy Molly Malone's. The menu is diverse and the food is great. My favorite is the avocado and shrimp salad, but I also enjoy the Irish breakfast, bangers and mash, leek soup, fish and chips, mussels, pretzels, etc. The service is usually very good and they have a nice draft beer selection.

The staff at Molly's was professional and incredibly delightful to work with. We booked the Shebeen room, and provided appetizers for our guests, with an optional cash bar. The facility exceeded all of my expectations.

I noticed the last review was some time back, so possibly an improvement has occurred or we landed there on a great night. We ordered the Irish Rueben, which had thick cut meat, toasted rye with large cut fries and a pickle. Very Good. Had the second half the next day and was still good. The fried chicken was skimpy,...

I knew better, but every couple of years I wonder if the food has gotten better...the answer is no! Truthfully, no one goes to Molly Malone's for the food, they go for the party, the widely televised soccer matches, the late night beer, but not for the food! Bangers and Mash could have been found in any Kroger frozen dinner... More

We come here often, usually sitting outside on the patio without dogs. First time in the dining room. Ordered app of mussles (we've had many times) of which only half were fully steamed. Fish n chips was undercooked as well. Disappointing visit.

You can tell that this place packs up quickly. Parking is tough and in the rear. Getting to it took a while. Service and food was good.

Basic "Irish" grub is ok- other places are better. While our server was fine, another brought my friend a cup of coffee that she literally slammed on the table. I see no need to return when there are better options in town.
